Review: Midnight Girls

Title: Midnight Girls
Author: Lulu Taylor
Publisher: Arrow Books
Pages: 656 
Reading Level: Adult
Rating: 3/5

From the prestigious dormitories of Westfield to the irresistible socialite scene of present-day London: everywhere Allegra McCorquodale goes, scandal follows her. And in Allegra's shadow are her closest friends since school, the Midnight Girls. Romily de Lisle: super rich, brilliant and bored. She's as blessed as Allegra when it comes to looks, but she's a force to be reckoned with. And Imogen Heath: pretty, timid and hopelessly drawn to Allegra's reckless charm. She longs to be a part of the glitzy high-society world where her friends move with such ease. Once free of the cloistered worlds of school and university, the Midnight Girls face new and different challenges, but they are for ever bonded by a terrible secret they've sworn never to break. Bitter rivalries arise as their professional lives soon cross paths. Greed, tragedy and sinister passions threaten their allegiance and each of them stand to lose what they love most...

This book is a soap opera! It  is all over the place, and there are more sex scenes in this book than ANY book I've ever read! It was too much. Very graphic. This book was more than chic lit. It was definitely a soap opera. Things were happening and you had no idea how is the world they got to that point!!

That being said, I still finished it in 2 days. I must have liked it enough to keep reading. The main characters are so different yet are still best friends, I liked that. The story shows these 3 girls from boarding school into adult life. Making it a longer book. I felt a lot could have been left out and we still would have gotten the whole picture.


  1. Lol this isn't the type of book I expect to contain so much sex scenes! But I know that type of book where you just go, 'another drama??' Lol thanks for the review!

  2. I think I'd like to read this one! Sounds dramatic and fun!

  3. This book definitely sounds like an entertaining ride! Not sure if it's for me, though. But who knows? I love that cover, so I might not be able to resist it if I see it in stores.

  4. Thanks for the review, there's a reason people get sucked into soap operas, the same must be true for this book!

  5. Haha, this was definitely a soap opera if you couldn't put it down but found it too much. Soap operas are so bad but so damn addictive!



  6. oh my! I'm glad you did this review, the jacket and cover looked so delicious, I was looking forward to reading it. Thanks for giving the heads up about the graphic descriptions! :D

  7. Too soapy for me but I liked your review and I love that dress.
